We note with sadness the passing of our
founder, publisher, and guiding spirit,
Robert D. Fleck, Jr. Bob launched Oak
Knoll Press in 1978, and in 2008 it received
the Institutional Award of the American

recognition of its services in advancing
understanding of the history of the book

City of Medieval and
Renaissance Papermaking
by Sylvia Rodgers Albro

Fabriano was at the center of Medieval and Renaissance Europe’s
paper industry, favored by merchants and Michelangelo, princes
and popes (including one who secretly ordered it while in exile),
and a growing, international clientele. Today, Fabriano paper is
still in demand among artists and printers for high-quality work...
and this book is printed on Fabriano Onyx.
In Fabriano: City of Medieval and Renaissance Papermaking Sylvia
Rodgers Albro explores how the Arab art of handmade paper
came to the Italian peninsula in the thirteenth century and why
Fabriano was well-positioned to develop as the heart of this artisan craft, first in Italy and subsequently for a larger Mediterranean
territory. The story of Fabriano’s success involves colorful figures
from monks, mercenaries, and merchants to engineers, entrepreneurs, and assassins. As Fabriano perfected the papermaking
craft, fine white Italian hand-made paper—admired for its exceptional quality and durability—was unrivaled in Europe from
the fourteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Rare books, prints, and manuscripts made with Italian paper from this period have
survived in remarkably pristine condition.
Through illuminating text, Albro analyzes the conditions that have kept the city’s papermaking industry in business for
eight centuries even as many other areas have ceased production. More than 200 illustrations document this remarkable history. Many illustrations pair images of original artifacts from Italian archives and Library of Congress collections made with
Fabriano paper and their identifying watermarks, the latter revealed through beta-radiography and digital photography. A
glossary of Italian terminology and technical appendices complete the volume.
Sylvia Rodgers Albro is a senior conservator of rare materials on paper at the Library of Congress.

Carol Twombly

Her brief but brilliant career in type design
by Nancy Stock-Allen

This study is a fascinating inside look at digital type design, the rather mysterious career of one of its most important practitioners, and the history and culture
of Adobe Type, with additional insight into other type designers of the digital
era. It is difficult to imagine a graphic designer in the last quarter century who is
not familiar with at least some of Carol Twombly’s typefaces. Yet many of those
who use her fonts today would be hard pressed to name their designer.
Twombly studied at the Rhode Island School of Design under professor Charles
Bigelow, and she also studied at the Bigelow & Holmes studio. She joined
Adobe Systems in 1988, when the company was hiring young designers for the
newly launched type department. During her ten years at Adobe, she designed
some of the most recognizable and popular typefaces on the market today,
including Trajan (1989), Charlemagne (1989), Lithos (1989), Adobe Caslon
(1990), Myriad (1991, with Robert Slimbach), Viva (1993), Nueva (1994), and
Chaparral (1997). In 1994, Twombly
won the Prix Charles Peignot, given
by the Association Typographique
Internationale (ATypI)—the first
woman, and second American, to
receive the award.

“An informative chronicle of the genesis of
digital type and the surprising parallel story
of some of its greatest innovators and their
groundbreaking work.”

Having achieved international recog— E.M. Ginger, from the Foreword
nition, Twombly was uncomfortable
being in the public eye at conferences and in Adobe marketing materials. She also
grew dissatisfied with changes at Adobe and with her evolving role at the company.
In 1999 she left both Adobe and her career to pursue other artistic interests.
Nancy Stock-Allen is a graphic designer and a blogger on subjects related to design,
type, and women in design history. She was formerly Professor of Graphic Design
and department chair at the Moore College
of Art and Design. She interviewed and corresponded extensively with Carol Twombly
and many of her associates and colleagues
in writing this profile of a woman who rose
to the top of a field historically dominated
by men, at a time of barrier-breaking and
technological revolution.
Illustrated throughout with halftones,
examples of Twombly’s design process, and
type specimens, this book will be of interest
to anyone involved in type design, typography, and computer-aided graphic design.
